Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after turning himself into Garland, Texas police today – he was later released after posting $25,000 bond – but apparently he’s pretty unwavering that he’s an innocent man.

That’s what he told one of his former college coaches this week, according to the St. Petersburg Times.

While talking to former Kansas co-defensive coordinator Clint Bowen, Talib – who is alleged to have fired gunshots at his sister’s boyfriend – proclaimed he wasn’t the one shooting.

 "I talked to Aqib two days ago," Bowen said. "I told him, 'I just read something about you firing a gun.' He said, 'Man, I didn't do a thing. It'll all come out soon.' He just kept saying that."

"He said, 'I didn't do that. That was my mom. It’s all going to come out.'"

It should be noted that Talib’s mother, Okolo Talib, also has been charged with the same crime.

All of this should made for an interesting dinner discussion the next time Talib and his mother see each other. But here’s the good news: if Talib is found not guilty of these charges and he needs to find extra work while the lockout continues, perhaps he can screen-write the script for the sequel to that Estelle Getty/Sylvester Stallone classic.

Josh,
It's momma that's got a sheet longer than her son's arms, not her boy. He's probably telling the truth.
